Yes, we have multiple site servers that are VMs.  It runs fine.

Although, support is not official via Microsoft:

Supported Virtualization Environments

Quote:
Configuration Manager 2007 supports client installation and all site server roles in the following virtualization environments:
    * Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2 (with no service pack and SP1)
    * Windows Server 2008 with Hyper-V
    * Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008
    * Server Virtualization Validation Program (SVVP)

Hello Malcatt!

You gave all credit for you question to mail2vijay1982.  Are you saying that all you really needed was the method to virtualize?  The way I read the question was that you emphasized if virtualization was supported.  This is why I specified MS's stand on P2V.  If you did in fact need to know the support specifics, you should have at least shared the point allocation to both mail2vijay1982 and myself.  Please keep this in mind in the future.

Thanks,
Ex
